ONSITE PROGRAMS

Learn Jelly offers onsite coding-based programs that are standards and project-based for organizations that serve elementary students. The student goals of our programs are the following.

  • Exposure to coding.
  • Improvement of reading comprehension and critical thinking skills.
  • Increase engagement and fun.

These goals are accomplished through a fun and creative experience that requires students to use storytelling, art, and coding to create digital drawings and animations.

In addition, Learn Jelly onsite programs support educators classroom objectives by helping them improve students reading comprehension and critical thinking skills through our multimodal process that leverages the power of visualization and retelling, well-established instructional and assessment practices in elementary schools (Brown & Cambourne, 1990; Morrow, 1985).

PROGRAM OPTIONS

JELLY DONUT (Individual Projects)

Jelly Donut requires a student to transform a story into a digital animation. During the program, students are provided with a story based on a content area and then walked through the following activities:

1. READING THE STORY.

2. DRAWING THE STORY.

3. ANIMATING THE DRAWING.

4. PRESENTING WORK

JELLY ROLL (Team Projects)

Jelly Roll requires a team of students to create an animated movie. During the program, a team of 4 students, who are assigned Director, Storyboarder, Writer and Programmer roles, work to create a 2 minute animated movie by:

1. CREATING A SHORT MOVIE SCRIPT.

2. TURNING THE SCRIPT INTO A STORYBOARD.

3. ANIMATING THE STORYBOARD BY CODING.

TIMELINE

Each program consists of 12 55 minute sessions that are held twice a week at the customer's location.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

We provide all materials except for the following:

  • Student Computers (Mac or Windows)
  • Internet Browser (Chrome, Sahari or Internet Explorer)

PRICING

A maximum of 20 students can particpate in each class.

Online Platform

A POWERFUL AND FUN PROJECT-BASED LEARNING EXPERIENCE THAT SUPPORTS STUDENTS ACADEMIC SUCCESS.

The Learn Jelly's online platform is a standards-based solution that helps elementary students learn deeper and improve reading and critical thinking skills through the process of digitally drawing and animating stories based on content areas.

Our platform provides educators with an online library filled with stories based on 204 concepts from content areas, such as math, science and social studies, that are written at various reading levels. Once educators find a story that matches their teaching objectives, they assign it to an individual or group of students. The platform then walks students through a series of activities that allow them to transform the story into a digital drawing and animation using drawing tools and visual block coding.

The Learn Jelly platform leverages the power of visualization and retelling activities, which is a well-established reading comprehension instructional and assessment practice in elementary schools (Brown & Cambourne, 1990; Morrow, 1985). Additionally, the animation activities provide a fun way to introduce every student to Computer Science.


Our Process

1. Educator Chooses A Story For StudentS.

Platform Tools And Outcomes

Storytelling

Storytelling

right-arrow.png

Deeper Learning - Stories allow students to feel, and see, the information, as well as factually understand it. As a result, the information is more likely to be imprinted on the brain in a way that it sticks with the individual longer, with very little effort on their part. (Neuhauser 1993, p.4).

Drawing

Drawing

Improved Reading Comprehension - Visualizing refers to our ability to create pictures in our heads based on text we read or words we hear. It is one of many skills that makes reading comprehension possible. This method is an ideal strategy to teach to young students who are beginning or struggling readers.

Coding

Computer Science (CS) Exposure - The most important part of the computer science experience is its ability to encourage and support creative expression and problem solving. As Seymour Papert said more than 30 years ago, CS is about giving kids the opportunity to engage with powerful ideas.

Improved Critical Thinking Skills - Teaching coding helps young students learn important creativity, conceptualization, application, analyzation, and evaluation skills that will position them well for success as they move through school and life.


Standards Alignment

Learn Jelly is tool that is designed to support teachers achievement of objectives, such as satisfying education standards, through content area-based stories, and art and coding activities. Currently, the Learn Jelly platform helps teachers achieve over 100 standards published by Common Core, Next Generation Science, ISTE, and Computer Science Teachers Association.

Join over 700 elementary teachers and 19,000 students from 43 states, District of Columbia and Canada in our exclusive and free pilot program.


"As a pioneer working to secure a placement for CS into the elementary curriculum, Learn Jelly is just the resource I have been searching for! I am a 5th grade teacher who also trains teachers in my district to use various CS programs. My district is on board with bringing CS into every elementary classroom, but the resounding question is always, "When will we have time?" Integration is key. Your site offers an answer." - Amanda Werner, Grade 5 Teacher (Wisconsin)

CLASSROOM PROJECTS

Building an online system that will help your students learn content areas, and improve reading and 21 century skills through computer science is tough work. Recently, while our team was eating jelly donuts during a snack break, we decided to bring the Learn Jelly experience to your classroom through a series of cool projects. Essentially, Jelly Projects are offline versions of Learn Jelly which can be easily implemented in classrooms utilizing existing and free resources.

We hope that these projects improve student learning and help you achieve classroom objectives. Thank you for being patient while we continue to build Learn Jelly. Enjoy!
